Famous quotes containing the words spirit of, band, spirit and/or america:

    A good writer possesses not only his own spirit but also the spirit of his friends.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    What passes for identity in America is a series of myths about one’s heroic ancestors. It’s astounding to me, for example, that so many people really seem to believe that the country was founded by a band of heroes who wanted to be free. That happens not to be true. What happened was that some people left Europe because they couldn’t stay there any longer and had to go someplace else to make it. They were hungry, they were poor, they were convicts.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)

    Out of the sighs a little comes,
    But not of grief, for I have knocked down that
    Before the agony; the spirit grows,
    Forgets, and cries;
    A little comes, is tasted and found good....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
